We are the master of our own destiny, when happy times are around us we never think of giving anyone credit and thanks for that. But when we are making bad choices or decisions while listening to others, we have the tendency to blame everyone except taking accountability for our own decisions.
It is always easier to deflect the blame from ourselves to others. Rather than looking at the situation with an honest and truthful perspective, instead we’d prefer to point fingers at others. We should learn from our lack of good judgment and the poor choices we are making along our journey. Especially when we are listening to others.
At the end of the day no matter how the situation will unfold we are the ones who are fully responsible for it. We did not have to listen to anyone instead we could have taken a step back and listened to our spirit. Some of our choices would have been different, we have to learn to trust our spirit, trust the Universe, trust the situation to unfold in a positive way and trust the process.
I have stated numerous times that in our lives we have individuals who are more than happy to give us unwanted advice thinking they can help us but instead they do not have the full picture. They are going with one side of the story. In times like that it is better to thank that person and walk away instead of listening to them. Holding grudges against people who have given you wrong advice is like having an anchor attached to your ankle. It is an extra weight you do not need to carry, giving them the power over you and wasting a lot of energy. Instead, release those people so you can free yourself of that burden.
We have so much to learn, every time you listen to someone else’s unsolicited advice just walk away. If you follow their advice and the situation worsens, you have not learned your lesson yet. But do not blame them for your setback.
